S.o.t.D. - Your Mind – DJ Boring

Your Mind – DJ Boring

Definitely not boring.

Thor’s Hammer Bracelet

I found an example of one of these in an Encyclopedia Britannica when I was a teen. Thought it as pretty neat. Found in Iceland, from around the time “pagan” beliefs were giving way to Christian beliefs. It combined elements of both. A few years later I saw ... I think it was one of the members of Coil wearing one ... or maybe it was Current 93 ... or perhaps it was Douglas P. from Death in June. Can’t remember for sure. Then I found one somewhere.

It’s pretty much sat in a box for a few decades. Came across it and even though I’m not Icelandic, Christian or Asatru, decided to use it as a closure for a bracelet.

S.o.t.D. - The Hitman – Marvellous Caine

The Hitman – Marvellous Caine

Built around samples of Renegades’s “Terrorist”, Cutty Ranks’ “Limb By Limb” and the 1980 film Babylon, a classic from the early days of jungle.

S.o.t.D. - Babylon – Splash

Babylon – Splash

The first minute and a bit of this are just lethal, but it loses focus after that. 

“All of the youth shall witness the day that babylon shall fall. I and I know that.”

S.o.t.D. - The Unofficial Ghost – Doc Scott

The Unofficial Ghost – Doc Scott

I thought this was yet another D&B track that sampled Japan (Ghosts, in this instance). But apparently this is a re-working of Ghosts Of My Life by Rufige Kru. Which is another guise of Goldie. Confused yet?

What I do know for sure, is that this track is just a monster.

S.o.t.D. - Find You – BLVCK MVK

Find You – BLVCK MVK

Apparently, this is “liquid witchhouse.” Okay. It’s pretty chillaxing, no matter how thinly parsed music gets.
